A political support group in Cross River state, Tinubu Vanguard, has reeled out reasons why it was seeking emergence of All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, as Nigeria’s president, come 2023.
The state coordinator of the group, Dr David Okon, told supporters in Calabar, during a meeting, that the former Lagos state governor has the capacity to address the ills afflicting the country and bring to reality the new Nigeria of everybody’s dream.
He noted that the template of what the APC strongman could do was shown in the Lagos state economy which, he said, Tinubu built and has been sustained by his political sons till date.
“I have no relationship whatsoever with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and I have not collected a dime from him for this cause but my position is based on what I have seen and which I know will be for the general good of the country as a whole.
“Among other governors of his time in 1999, it is only him who is still standing tall and unwavering. He has an empire of men that he has helped from nothing to limelight. He has the capacity to give us a new Nigeria of our dream. Lagos State is a typical example of his pragmatic leadership capability and economic acumen.
“I have no doubt in my mind that Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu is the next president considering his tract record and antecedent, and he shall be a unifying factor and pull our country to another level of nationhood. This is the only option Nigeria has,” Dr Okon stated.
In his remarks, the South South Vice Chairman of the group, Prof Bassey Ekpenyong, said natural Justice and the law of prototype were in favour of Tinubu.
“There is sanctity of natural Justice and reward which cannot be ignored. The seed Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu had sown is germinating. Besides, after the tenure of President Mihammadu Buhari who was of the CPC as one of the legacy parties, natural Justice demands that someone from the ACN should take over.
“Moreover, In Lagos State, Tinubu gave us the prototype of the NIgeria of his dream. We need this prototype for a total reversal of the socio-economic and security challenges the country is passing through,” Ekpenyong submitted.No tags for this post.
